Liberty in the Middle East

From the Guardian:
He [Bush] rejected any notion of a "graceful exit" as unrealistic: "It's in our interests to help liberty prevail in the Middle East, starting with Iraq. And that's why this business about graceful exit simply has no realism to it at all."
When Bush speaks of the prevalence of liberty in the Middle East, all I can think of is liberty for him and his oil industry cronies to further exploit the oil wealth of the region for their own interests.

I say no to you, Bush. Am I totally off my rocker, or what?

Here's a link to the article from The Guardian, which describes Bush's continued support for Nouri al-Maliki, and occupation:,,1961618,00.html
